Duff & Phelps (DUF) announced that, following the expiration of the “go-shop” period provided for in its previously announced merger agreement with a Consortium comprising controlled affiliates of or funds managed by The Carlyle Group (CG), Stone Point Capital LLC, Pictet & Cie and Edmond de Rothschild Group, the company did not receive any alternative acquisition proposals from third parties. The company remains committed to the Consortium’s proposal to acquire the company for $15.55 per share in cash in a transaction valued at approximately $665.5M. During the “go-shop” period, Centerview Partners, the company’s financial advisor, with the direction of the Transaction Committee of the Board of Directors, comprised of independent Directors, undertook a broad solicitation effort, contacting 27 potential acquirers believed to have potential strategic or financial interest in an alternative transaction to the transaction with the Consortium. These proactive contacts resulted in 5 parties negotiating and entering into confidentiality agreements with the company, although no alternative acquisition proposals from third parties were received. The transaction is expected to close in 1H13.
